The Missing Piece

If a personal enemy of Christ had unlimited power to discredit him, he could not do better than to create a religion that opposed and contradicted everything that Christ taught, and then claim that Christ founded it. And that is precisely what has happened.
Jesus said that the religious builders have been trying to put their building together without the most important piece: the cornerstone. (Mat. 13:24-30; and Luke 20:17-18)

It isn't that they haven't tried to find a cornerstone, or criteria by which to assess truth and error. It's just that they have tried everything except the teachings of Christ.
At the conclusion of his sermon on the mount, Christ said, "Whoever hears these sayings of mine and does them, I will liken him unto a wise man who built his house on a rock. And everyone that hears these sayings of mine and does not obey them shall be likened unto a foolish man who built his house upon the sand." (Mat. 7:24-27)
Many of the teachings of Christ have been referred to in this booklet, but in case the positive side of what he taught has been lost in criticisms of the myths, we will state at least some of it here.
Jesus said that the whole world lives in fear of starving to death, little realising that the Creator of the universe has the ability to see that everyone has everything he needs. (Matthew. 6:30-33)He says that if we will stop working for food (John 6:27) and spend our time spreading this message of God's providential care all over the world (Mark 16:15), he will take care of our needs.
That is what we are doing, and we have found that, by starting here, our "building" has fitted together, the Bible has made sense, and God has amply provided for our needs.

Matthew 13:24-30 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:
25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?
28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?
29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.
30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.
